Mas dinero, mas dinero, mas dinero!
Jennifer Lopez’s huge new deal with “American Idol” has prompted her fellow judge, rocker Steven Tyler, to urge Fox to bump up his own payday.
While J.Lo negotiates the finishing touches of a deal, said to be worth up to $20 million, to return to “Idol” for another season, sources say leaks about the nature of the talks have made her fellow judges restless.
Aerosmith frontman Tyler is already tied into a two-year deal worth about $10 million a year, while Randy Jackson has said he’s committed to coming back to the show.
One source told Page Six, “J.Lo’s management is close to brokering her a huge deal to come back to the panel for at least one more season, and but the side effect is that it means her fellow judges also want more money.
According to the “sources” Stephen think’s he’s J.Lo…Simon Cowell…
“Steven is halfway through a two-year deal, and his management has asked for more money,” the source said. “They argue he was just as sensational and as popular on the panel as Jennifer. But, on the other side, show bosses argue he’s tied into a deal and has to stick to it. However, it’s hoped they can come to a compromise to keep Steven happy, because the producers love him.”
He aight, he aight, but we don’t know that people would be incredibly sad to see that skinny-a** bag of bones bounce. We’re sure that are other eligible judges what could be far more popular than Tyler.
Who would you like to see replace Steven Tyler if he were to leave ‘Idol’??
